Getting permission to film in India is never an easy task. Understandably, the authorities don’t like foreign organisations focusing exclusively on the need. But there is a huge need, especially when children are dying of starvation on a daily basis.

A fundraising bicycle ride across Rajasthan was a great opportunity for some famous UK chefs to see the need with their own eyes, and do something about it thanks to the help of Action Against Hunger. Presented by food writer and TV chef Gizzi Erskine, we follow the pack of riders as they visit clinics to get an understanding of the challenges that face millions of mothers and children in India.

Although we were denied permission to bring cameras in to the country, we used a local camera crew that we managed and produced, editing the footage back in the UK to produce this fundraising film.
